Kidnapping, murder, and suicide take the spotlight in this fact-based novel by author Derek N. Burnell.

(PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Spanning the world from America to Asia, weaving cultures and criminal activities into a taut thriller, "Death on Pause" is based on the events that turned a real woman's enviable life into a living nightmare.

When Taiwanese model Kaelyn Yen is drugged and held captive by the head of one of Americas top modeling agencies, she realizes that the recent deaths in her family were not accidents, but meticulously planned murders carried out by her Triad-affiliated relatives. Kaelyn's boyfriend joins with the FBI to rescue her and bring her extortionists to justice; but not all schemes go according to plan. As a result, Kaelyns plight escalates into an international pursuit through Los Angeles, San Francisco, Taipei, and Hong Kong. It leads to the torture and murder of Kaelyns two best friends, and causes the FBIs key witness to commit suicide before she can give evidence in court.

"Death on Pause: The Troy Machalek Diaries" is a riveting crime thriller that will captivate and shock until the last spine-chilling page.
